This 2003-2007 version PPT presentation includes 90+ slides with pictures and facts about (6)scientists.
Each of the six sets contains the following:
A list of vocabulary words and definitions to preview
5 or more slides with information introducing students to a scientist
A one page summary of all the information on the slides so students can have a copy to follow along with and to highlight as they locate evidence in the text
Slides with the questions from the student quiz in order to read each aloud to students until they get acquainted with the process.
A one page quiz that requires students to find evidence right in the text, figure out information that isn’t right there by making inferences based on context clues and prior knowledge, evaluate/analyze the text, and make connections to the text.
Two answer sheets: one with highlighted evidence; the other with correct quiz answers
Sources of photos, videos and information cited (a good opportunity to discuss crediting sources when writing nonfiction).
